    A packet of Tangfastics which to my certain knowledge, have been through the washing machine at least twice and the contents of which is now just one big fizzy glutinous lump.

    A sort of megatangsoapfastic.

    I actually ate a lump of it the other night.

    Eight blank magazines (5.56mm), a portable dog water bowl and a sleeping bag.

    The contents of the front passenger footwell can best be described as “Litter bin”.

    I’ve had a set of road mudguards in the void under the boot floor for about six months, and a fold up dog bowl (which leaks)

    The idea for this thread occured when in the car park this morning with a work collegue who asked why I have;

    A chainsaw
    98 wine glasses
    The Guiness book of records
    20 rugby balls

    All in the boot of my car

    It’s not exactly unusual, the stuff in my boot… it’s just that occasionally it puts people off taking a lift when they see the rope, the shovel, the tarp, and the roll of old carpet.

    I drove round with a brand new huge Axe in the boot for a month that I’d forgotten about (thanks STW’er Skiprat).

    Then I realised what IF I’m pulled ‘so anything offensive in your car sir’.

    Erm.

    @Jamie, was your car made by communist midlanders in the late 1970s?

    Currently there’s 4 audi 16″x7 alloys rattling around the 500’s boot.

    Mate of mine has his step dads ashes…. Been there for about 12 month.

    Not really interesting but definitely rank.

    The missus got in the car last night and suggested that a valet deal on groupon might be a good idea, she hasn’t seen my desk…

    Good friend of mine (female) uses the “what’s in your boot” question at speed dating events (she’s into that kind of thing). Replies will quickly sort the wheat from the chaff. Set of golf clubs – get lost. Muddy wellies/bike/dog/boots and you’re in there!

    In the Beetle there is:
    A sewing machine
    A hockey stick
    A book – The Cobra in the Barn
    A CD – The Joshua Tree
    A tin of shortbread

    I am not even going to look in the Syncro!

    In actual fact, there was a toy dinosaur in there for a while, now there is just a shitload of bags for life of all kinds. Enough to carry about ten trolleys worth of shopping, and way more than the car could carry if they were full.

    Other than that it’s just oil, screenwash, spare bulbs, that kind of thing.
